i love the dogs here, i go there a couple times a week to get my hot dog fix, so today my wife and i decided to go get a couple dogs, we ordered them along with fries, we arrived at 2pm, we waited 10...minutes and i was thinking maybe they are just busy, then i watched 2 different people order food long after me get theirs before me, then i watched a woman g o in and dine them come out later with a to go box, so now its been 25 to 30 minutes so i went and asked about my order, she said its coming right up, 10 minutes later still no food so i asked again at which point she admitted she didnt know what happened to my ticket wasting nearly 4 minutes of my time, so i asked for a refund, she said she coudnt find my ticket and wanted to make my order so i guess i was supposed to re-order what i already ordered 40 minutes prior, at this point i was done, i was starving but she still wouldnt refund my money so i left without my money or the food i paid for, what a great feeling. sad part is, now i have to find a place that has a decent dog to eat as i will be to feeling to awkward to come back for that kinda treatment. another fun fact, they dont read these reviews i was told by a former employee so this is for you out there, cause they dont care about customers enough to rectify problems.More

If you want a good home cooked meal give A&G a try. This is a weekly spot for us and well worth the visit. Great food friendly service

Not a big barbecue eater so we wanted to give this place a shot. Not sure what we were expecting but the bbq pork chopped fell short. Very vinegar tasting and missing anything resembling bbq sauce. Disappointing. But the fried shrimp were flawless, collards were...bland, hush puppies delicious, fish sandwich also was amazing. Green Beene were canned but the banana pudding was spot on. Strange that the non bbq items were so good and the southern style bbq was lacking. That being said prices were very reasonable and the service was quick. I would go back!More

We were looking for a place to get some good Carolina BBQ and saw an ad for this place. We were pleasantly surprised. It is a small place but they prepared fantastic pulled pork. It was well cooked and juicy with just the right amount...of fat. It was seasoned perfectly and was served with hush puppies that were tasty and cooked to perfection. We were impressed enough that we wanted to come back tomorrow but they are closed on Monday so we will have to wait until next trip.More

Very plain bbq that needed vinegar and seasoning. Not impressed with the place at all. I travel all over nc for BBQ, this was not the best.

Here is a great place to stop in for a BBQ sandwich. The place doesn't seat many but the food is good and the staff friendly, they give you that down home feeling

We're local (as of 4 years ago) and A&G has probably become our most frequented restaurant...good "down home" people...chicken is great (pretty much what I have gotten every time I've been there)...unbelievable number of vegetable choices...other seafood options...for those of you that like milkshakes, A&G...makes a good one...eat in or call for take-outMore

The food is great and reasonably priced. Great place for lunch and a good shrimp burger. Service a little slow, but the food made up for it.

My son said five stars for the fried chicken. Everything was cooked fresh. You really can't go wrong. Brunswick stew, BBQ pork, fried okra. Sweet potato fries, cole slaw and hush puppies were all delicious.

This is a great local establishment! Good main dishes with a wide variety of sides. I had the fried catfish dinner and my wife had chicken and pulled pork. She shared some pork it it may be the best I’ve tasted so far. The place...is nothing fancy with bare bones dinning room plus picnic like space outside. If you’re looking for local flavor it’s a must when visiting Pleasure Island.More
